Resident Evil 3’s release date is just over a week away. That’s plenty of time to replay the Resident Evil 2 remake, right? Well, if that tickles your fancy (and why wouldn’t it?) Massihancer of Doom 2016 ray tracing mod fame has been working on a new graphical mod, this time for Resident Evil 2.
Massihancer’s last photorealistic ray tracing graphics mod made Doom 2016 look absolutely spectacular, and the story doesn’t change with his latest mod. Fixing the game’s apparent contrast issues, he used the “double contrast” technique, also “adding many more filmic effects, details and reflections” by using Pascal Gilcher’s global illumination ReShade shader.
The ray tracing mod also adds “new shadows, from Leon’s hair and body to all the map objects” thanks to ambient occlusion. In other words, then, if you want to get torn limb from limb but also have those limbs look super realistic, this mod might be the one for you.
